I had an idea of what I wanted in my head but struggled to describe in using the industry-standard terms. Emily was able to quickly and accurately translate what I was looking for and helped facilitate a speedy (24 hour) turnaround of a finished product that exceeded my expectations. I will not be using another printing service in the future since I have certainly found the best one.

Mimi B. Delos Therapy
In the case of our situation, we had to reprint a block frame adhesive poster. We had sent the original out for the installation along with a PDF file. The associate in charge of my order made me aware that the print was not the same color as the original and allowed us to get a revision. I was worried we would be charged extra for the faulty file and misprint, but the associate was understanding and thoroughly communicated all steps of the process from the pickup, installation, and delivery.
Anthony H. MiQ

I have used Alpha Graphics for work and knew that when I needed some items printed for my own wedding they were the group I trusted for the job. The Alpha Graphics team were not only able to meet my tight turnaround time for delivery but did a fantastic job! Even when we had a hiccup that the file types I sent wouldn't print properly, they quickly reached out and were very helpful to find a solution.

ABOUT THE OWNER
AlphaGraphics Chicago North had been serving the printing and communication needs of Chicago businesses for 24 years before Rob purchased the company in September of 2011. "We work with small and mid-sized businesses to provide marketing, mailing, printing and design services, often for companies that do not have those capabilities internally," states Rob.
Rob has worked in a number of different industries, initially in marketing, and moving to mortgage, banking, title insurance, financial services and now back to marketing and printing. All along, Rob's most treasured asset has been his network and the relationships he has forged and maintained in Chicago.
Regardless of industry, company, or position, Rob has always built businesses and/or departments thorugh his own efforts. His network was originally created within the real estate industry while working in the mortgage banking industry. As his network continued to expand, he moved into commercial and private banking.
In 2003, along with his attorney partners, he launched a new company, Synergy Title Services LLC. In just over four years, he built and sold the business to a national competitor. After the sale, Rob migrated back into banking/financial services, first with JP Morgan, and then with Morgan Stanley, while acquiring several licences including: Series 7, 65, 63 and State of Illinois Insurance.
Rob lives in the Lakeview neighboorhood of Chicago. He is married with two children. He is an avid runner, having completed the Chicago Marathon twelve times and having qualified and ran the Boston Marathon in 2010. Rob also completed the Ironman Wisconsin Triathlon in 2011. Rob is also an avid skier, both on the water and on the slopes, and is a youth lacrosse and softball coach.
